A+E Networks taps Clearleap to support set-top VOD

Atlanta technology company Clearleap says it's stuck a deal with A+E Networks to power set-top-based VOD programming across all of the conglomerate's channels.

Clearleap says the partnership launched earlier in January and includes channels such as A&E, History, Lifetime, FYI, LMN and H2. The agreement also includes the opportunity for Clearleap to support A+E's multiscreen services later on.

"A+E Networks has truly set the standard for producing premium, engaging programs across major branded channels, while simultaneously capitalizing on evolving viewer preferences," said Braxton Jarratt, CEO of Clearleap, in a statement. "With this partnership, we have the opportunity to bolster A+E Networks' extensive video offerings while working alongside one of the largest, most respected and premium brands in the pay-TV industry."

Added Richard Shirley, A+E Networks' VP of distribution business development: "The logistics of publishing on-demand content have become dramatically complex. At A+E, we're always looking to leverage technologies that will help us manage complexities and ensure the content viewers are looking for is available when they want it."
